On Friday, June 10 at exactly 9:27 a.m. EST, every adult on Earth drops dead.

The children have inherited the Earth. And their nightmare is just beginning.

Facing starvation and pursued by a relentless sniper bent on killing her, Josie Revelle - and undersized misfit with nowhere to run - embarks on a mad 48-hour journey that takes her places darker than she ever imagined. She finds friendship in Shawnika Williams, a street-smart, hard-punching girl on a desperate quest to find her missing brother, and Grace Cavanaugh, a naive West Virginia farm girl looking for redemption . . . and Josie's about to become an unwilling messiah.

At the end of their path awaits charismatic, megalomaniacal teenage psychopath Zane Barzan, who commands an army of adolescent killers and has been busy building his own blood-soaked empire modeled after Hitler's Third Reich.

Misfit. Brawler. Tomboy. Psychopath. Are they the end of humanity, or a new beginning?

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Pierce Brown’s relentlessly entertaining debut channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.

“Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow.”—Scott Sigler

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, BUZZFEED, AND SHELF AWARENESS

“I live for the dream that my children will be born free,” she says. “That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.”
“I live for you,” I say sadly.
Eo kisses my cheek. “Then you must live for more.”
 
Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children.

But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and lush wilds spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.

Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power.  He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Pierce Brown's Golden Son.

“[A] top-notch debut novel . . . Red Rising ascends above a crowded dystopian field.”—USA Today

“Red Rising is a sophisticated vision. . . . Brown will find a devoted audience.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
